Time for another Jim Sterling video!

Hard to imagine people still playing this gift that keeps on giving.

How many "Okay, it's dead for real this time" 's in are we? This truly is the gift that keeps on giving, and it never runs out of steam. I'm not convinced we've seen the last of this train wreck until the servers are completely shutdown. I know it seems like this is the worst it can possibly get, but I know it's not.

Bethesda will no doubt make good by adding a new membership tier.

I know this is mean to say, but if you're still playing this game, you deserve to be hacked!

I'm kidding of course, for God's sake mods, don't ban me!

At this rate I am willing to bet there are a portion of people playing who are just doing so to see just how messed up it gets. Everything I've heard makes 76 sound like a barely functional multiplayer garry's mod, which has a slight bit of appeal.

@dudeglove: it's not quite this bad, like 95% functional now. The problem is the 5% that is busted is really messed up, like stats not working on legendary items or this recent hack. Obviously this is what journalists and vocal minorities focus on, which is fair because it shouldn't happen, even if it's not the full picture.

The fact this kind of stuff is still happening over a year after release is a shame though because they did actually fix a lot of the early issues. I mean its still F76, but they did at least get most of it working as intended.

Looking forward to reading through the reviews when it hits steam next year.

@sarcasticmudcrab: I watched Noah Caldwell Gervais' excellent video on it and the short version of that essay is he very much enjoyed the shop-til-you-drop loop. He also put up with NMS' myriad bugs and issues about three times to go over each update so he's no stranger to titles that are broken on release.

However, I have zero intention of giving bethesda money for this grotesque pushing of the goalposts and exploitation of labour, and I don't look forward to reading the eventual detailed stories on how woefully crunched and underfunded the Austin staff were/are. That players are able to spawn in FO4 assets with basic scripts is beyond absurd, and it doesn't bode well for the rest of Bethesda's mainline games.

@dudeglove: yes they really need to get their next game right. Personally I find some of Bethesdas business practices fairly disgusting, nothing particularly unique to the industry but any *Jim Sterling voice* "triple A live service" game blatantly attempting to rip people off doesn't deserve success. They also made repairing items a pain in the arse and offer repair kits in the real money shop which is just dirty. At least at low level, didn't get far enough to see if that gets any easier later on.

I didn't know there were also unfair labour practices going on at Bethesda as well though, that is unacceptable obviously.

The train wreck of this game goes so far beyond the fact that it is just a bit of a shit game it's going to be historical.

Edit: they fixed the hack btw

There could be a top worst of just for this game alone. That rather impressive that this company is so out of touch and continues to just flop around like a dying fish they continue to just continue to be completely incompetent.

I recommend replaying a previous fallout game instead of playing 76, i replayed Fallout 3 with all dlc a year ago and i loved rediscovering it! Looking forward to doing the same with new vegas =)
